The first poeticus narcissi are opening. The flower stalks are many and the buds are fat, so it appears that this will be an excellent year for them. We still have Minnow, which I don't think I've yet mentioned this year. The first cornflower to open is a pink one. We're still unable to identify a daffodil with a substantial pale, buttery perianth and an egg-yolk trumpet. It's more delicate than Ice Follies, but very sturdy against the wind, with more of a trumpet than a cup. Having spent too much time around race tracks once upon a time, I'm calling it Sunny Jim until I track it down. We'd get more.
